I'm confused, Reedy creek is on the exempted list but every man and his dog goes there.

I forgot to post an update, oh well, better late than never. There is a map of the area that you are allowed to prospect in.
http://parkweb.vic.gov.au/__data/assets … -Guide.pdf

Other maps can be found here,

Just thought I'd post it for any newcomers like myself.

I think I might have been avoiding a pannable creek very close to me for a little over a year now... on the exempt list it mentions "Yarrowee River Tributary of Barwon River" there happens to be a Yarrowee creek near me (Sebastopol in Ballarat)... and it never occurred to me that there could be a different one... given the Barwon River is quite a bit further down South (or at least Google Maps seems to have it listed down there)... is my local Yarrowee Creek a different creek and I can therefore pan it or does the Barwon River come all the way up here and muck up my hopes of a short trip to pan? (I should probably know more about the path of the Barwon River but my memory is a bit rusty).

the creek and the river may be one and the same .....

Yes - curious though that the Yarrowee mentioned on the exempt list says it is a tributary of the Barwon River, a river which is on the opposite side (south side) of the Dividing Range to the Yarrowee River/creek asociated with the Ballarat Goldfield.

but there's no gold in the exempt creeks and rivers, they are exempt so no-one wastes
their time and energy digging there for nothing and disturbing things..
